    Default When plugged in to PC my cellphone does not identify my micro SD Card

    The title says just about all. My micro SD Card has verified its presence in earlier ways. However, when I plug my Android CellPhone (Sony) into the PC's USB port it acts as if that storage not available? My micro card is 16 Gig and I am just getting my PC used to it (or at least tried hard to!!)

    You may have to change an option on the phone, so it gets recognised?

    Did it bring up any options like use it as a removable device / a cam or something?

    SD card can only be seen if using MTP connection on android 4 and up.

    Are you seeing the phones internal storage?

    If not, you may want to swap the usb cable till you find one that works properly (a method I always have to do), I am not sure why some cables don't work, haven't been curious enough yet to check, maybe the USB standards can shed some light.

    I've always found it quicker and more reliable to remove the card and just use a card reader. In saying that, if all setup correctly, it ought to work though.
